This vintage is the eighth consecutive bottling of Trousseau Gris from the Fanuchi-Wood Road Vineyard that we have produced. The 2016 is most reminiscent of the 2015 at this stage with just slightly more cut and precision and the same delicious fruit. Fermented almost entirely in concrete this gorgeously playful white is becoming a California Classic and remains a staple in the finest restaurants in the world for its vibrancy, purity and versatility to pair with a wide variety of foods.
Bright, fresh, and clean, with crisp fruits, pronounced floral aromatics, and exotic spices, that keep this unique white in focus. Smashable and delicious it struts its Savoie roots while retaining all the bright California fruit that we would expect from this Russian River site.
